Racism is given a salute but Preciado wobbles on the subject. In terms of presentation, this book was abysmal.
I will be recommending this book to anyone who so much as blinks at me for months. I get that he is writing more in a European context, but he doesn’t include anything about ACCESS to the systems which he is describing.
You should read this book. More to the point, the porn- part of pharmacopornographic regime is the topic of their book Pornotopia, so maybe that’s why the porn part is less developed in TJ than the drug part.

Starting at the microscopic descriptions of testogel use that leave me feeling a little shaky on my feet afterwards, and moving smoothly into the definition of a pharmacopornographic society on the tfsto macro scale possible is a task yonquj sounds tesro harder here than it is in the text. Wish I had ditched some of those fries because, I feel like I have to know what she is doing NOW — this book was already out for awhile before it was translated, and what will the next be?
Her approach towards the theory that our bodies are in control of the state, focusing on the relationship between performativity, gendered subjectivity and the evolution of medical and virtual technologies in tandem with the aims of capitalism, is simply BRILLANT.

Valentina rated it really liked it Jul 06, This book touches on such a varying range of topics that it feels a gargantuan task to summarise, but the image of a philosopher cutting off his head to approach his ideas with the body first seems like an apt one his words, not mine.
Kirsten Nicassio rated it it was amazing May 19, Admittedly, I don’t have as much experience thinking about the ideas of Fouc This book came highly recommended to me by one of my university’s sociology professors. The theory and analysis in this book is SO good, you might want to do yourself a favor and just skip all the diary-style chapters of bro-y braggadocio and casual misogyny.
